Meet Me, Dr. Sheila: Hi! I'm Dr. Sheila Forman. I am a psychologist, certified group psychotherapist, life coach, mindful eating instructor and ( would you believe?) a former practicing attorney. My goal as a psychologist is to help my clients thrive!

What I Do: By using therapy and/or life coaching, I help people reduce anxiety, get rid of depression, heal relationships, change their eating habits, lose weight, improve their self-esteem and cope with major life changes.

How Can I Help You Do This? By helping you understand why you do what you do, think what you think, and feel what you feel. Once you have figured that out, I help you apply what you learned to your life so you can heal what hurts and move onto bigger and better things.

Twenty Years and Counting! I have been helping people thrive for over twenty years and am known around town as having the "heart of a therapist and the mind of a lawyer!"

Want to Know Me Better? If you want to get a better feel for who I and how I approach things, you might want to read one of my books: The Best Diet Begins in Your Mind – Eliminate the Eight Emotional Obstacles to Permanent Weight Loss,  Do You Use Food to Cope?, or Self-fullness: The Art of Loving and Caring for Your ‘Self.’

My books truly reflect my voice, my style and my attitude towards personal growth and change.  I think you will find that I am non-judgmental, compassionate, empathetic and (hopefully) wise. I've been told I have a good sense of humor too. But, I guess, you'll be the judge of that.

Free Consultation for You! Finally, because finding the right therapist is so important. I always offer a free initial consultation.  
 
So, what are you waiting for? Come on in. You've got nothing to lose ...but your pain!
